Southern Arabian Peninsula Chapter Hosts 1st HSE Awards Ceremony

The Southern Arabian Peninsula Chapter (SAPC) held their Q2 Chapter meeting on 13 May.

“We had a great turnout!,” said Hisham Zebian, IADC’s Vice President of International Development, Eastern Hemisphere.

“Getting together with industry colleagues to ‘meet, share, and make a difference’ is something we look forward to each quarter,” said G Higgins, Marketing Manager at Maersk Training Eastern Hemisphere about enjoying the Chapter meeting. “But while the presentations are usually insightful, it was more than just a get-together. The focus on safety during the May meeting was great to see. It’s always nice to speak to new Chapter Members and learn about their business solutions and what they are doing to drive safety in their organizations. It’s also nice to tell people how Maersk Training has been a member of the SAPC for a number of years now, and continues to deliver IADC courses to our client network.”
